Sylvester - - Some young girls in Worth County spread holiday cheer Thursday to senior citizens.

Members of Brownie Troop 270 visited the Sylvester Nursing home. They sang holiday tunes like Jingle Bells and Silent night to the nursing home residents.

They've never done this before, but troop leaders say activities like this are good character builders.  

"Just to bring some joy and peace and harmony to people who cant get out and don't get to see much of what's going on and just to have fun basically," says Troop Leader Sandy Jarrell.

The residents were also treated to a slide show of Christmas lights. Nursing home workers say this is a good treat for the residents, because many of them have no way to go see the lights on their own.
